June 29, 2012; Los Angeles, CA, USA; An event staff member (left) tries to pick up Clinton Moore's running motorcycle and crashes it into Moore as medical staff attend to him after crashing during the Moto X Best Trick event of the X Games Los Angeles at the Staples Center.  Mandatory Credit: Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIREEvery time the X Games rolls around, we see guys attempting things that require an extremely unstable mind and an incredibly coordinated body.

Sometimes they're successful. Sometimes, not so much.

One of the latest attempts at ridiculousness was this 720 by Clinton Moore in the Best Trick competition.

If he had landed it, he would have almost guaranteed himself the gold.

But of course, as you can probably already figure out, he didn't.

Better (or worse) yet, the guy who was supposed to get his bike out of the way after the crash... he lost control of the bike and pretty much ran over Moore with his own bike.

It looked like he was OK when all is said and done, so feel free to laugh if you'd like.

The footage, which has gone viral, captures the absurd escape from the driver’s position in the bus. The disciplinarian who survived the forecourt accident has been dubbed the jogos de fazenda “luckiest dude in Russia” by Claudio Paskuale, who uploaded the affecting footage to the web.

Well the X Games accept been traveling for 17 years now after a individual fatality. Unlike let's say Nascar, Daytona, and any amount of added able antic events. So explain to me how a admirable engineer, such as those acclimated in the aloft cited examples, are authoritative sports safer.
